As the old saying goes, "a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind". Keeping your working environment clean and in order is one of the most important things to do before the start of the working week and even during the week.
Everyone wants to best prepare those working for them to have the most productive, enjoyable and efficient day possible and making sure that their surroundings are clean and tidy is a vital part of that. This means that everything from a proper wipe down of desks to cleaning the floors and kitchen area and more is imperative.
The trouble is that cleaning an office can be very time consuming and just plain exhausting. Some employers like to take the clean as you go approach, but this is not always the best decision. This could even affect workplace productivity in a negative way! If we take a quick look at just some of the things that this would entail for your employees throughout their day to day routines, it is easy to see how the amount of wasted minutes could add up and before you know it, your team has lost a good few productive hours throughout the course of a week:
- Wiping down all working areas (desks, computers, keyboards, chairs etc.).
- Cleaning the floor so thoroughly that you would think you had paid for a professional commercial carpet cleaning.
- Total clean-up of the kitchen (including any dirty dishes and left-over mess!).
- Emptying the bins and replacing them all with a new bag.
- Making sure that all sinks and toilets are sparkling.
If the team is distracted with cleaning up the second that they drop a crumb on their desk, how can they be expected to get any serious work done? So, in 99% of cases getting your employees to clean the office is just not a viable option. Especially when looking to optimise your staffs time management and productivity.
Fortunately, the answer is simple.
